“Out of memory” error with Adobe InDesign CS6 and El Capitan

A user who upgraded to El Capitan but still uses Adobe InDesign CS6 was getting an error about InDesign being "out of memory." I did some Googling and came across this fix.

Application Frame was already disabled under the window, so the user didn't have to do that, but "trashing" (really renaming to com.adobe.InDesign.plist.bak when InDesign is closed) the ~/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.InDesign.plist file seems to have fixed the issue.

  1. “trashing” (really renaming to com.adobe.InDesign.plist.bak when InDesign is closed) the ~/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.InDesign.plist file seems to have fixed the issue.

    Man, I coudn’t find this fil to trash. Where is it actually?

    Thanks you!

    1. Hi, Jenn.

      ~/ is a shortcut for the current user’s home directory. So if your home directory is jenn, then ~/Library is the same as /Users/jenn/Library. Hope that helps.
